“Losing a daughter that young is absolutely horrible,” she said. “You are not prepared for that at all.”
Naiyozcsia King, owner of Mz Jade’s Soul Food, is preparing the entrees; Ami Vitori, owner of Gracie’s Restaurant, is cooking appetizers; Christina Sampson, a local baker, is bringing desserts; and other female business owners are assisting.
King said donating food is the “right thing to do” and shows how the Middletown community rallies after tragedies.
“We hope to take a load off her,” she said of Mykiara’s mother.
King said she can’t imagine burying a child.
“Just the thought makes me sick to my stomach,” she said.
Her aunt, Atiya Jones, created a GoFundMe page for the family.
She said Mykiara, “a beautiful angel,” lost her life when a family fun-filled day turned tragic.
“Mykiara was truly an amazing young girl who touched the lives of many,” her aunt said. “She had a humble heart, caring spirit, and a beautiful smile that would light up a room.”
